            Can't sleep? Who better to deliver the recipe for a peaceful night based on groundbreaking sleep science than the bestselling author of The Fast 800, The Clever Guts Diet and The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet. Getting a good night's sleep can improve your mood, cut your risk of depress...ion, help you fight chronic disease, keep you slim and even improve your memory; so why is it that so many of us don't prioritise the necessary 7-8 hours a night? In Fast Asleep, Dr Michael Mosley brings together the latest science to explain exactly what happens to us when we sleep and why it is so important that we get enough of it. Prone to insomnia, he has taken part in numerous sleep experiments and tested every sleep remedy going. He explains why so many of us struggle with sleep, what works and what doesn't and shares his own myth-busting programme to help you achieve a good night's rest. Along with fascinating case studies, 50 delicious, sleep-promoting recipes and menu plans by his wife Dr Clare Bailey, this book explains why gut health and meal times matter, explores the science of dreaming and reveals tips and tricks to help you not just to sleep better but to reduce stress levels and feel happier and healthier in general.

            The Rules of Contagion: Why Things Spread - and Why They Stop (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Export / Airside)

            Why do some ideas take off - and others fail to spread? Why are some diseases predictable, and others swamped in uncertainty? And what about the outbreaks that never happen at all? A passenger getting on a plane in Hong Kong can spark an outbreak of flu in Mexico. Someone default...s on their mortgage in Florida, and a financial panic kindles in London. One individual can reach an audience of millions with a single tweet: we live in a world that's more connected than ever before. But even as we see our lives being shaped by the spread of ideas, trends - and even diseases - we sometimes struggle to grasp how it actually works. Outbreaks seem to be driven by randomness and hidden laws, and in order to understand them, we need to start thinking like mathematicians. Here, epidemiologist Adam Kucharski reveals how new mathematical approaches are transforming what we know about contagion - from the revolutionary initiatives that helped tackle gun violence in Chicago to the truth behind the spread of fake news. And along the way, he'll explain how happiness and depression can spread through our friendship networks, why some predictions go badly wrong (and that might not be a bad thing), and why most people are less popular than their friends.
